Welcome to the website of Little Marlow Parish Council. We do hope you find your visit helpful and that you call back regularly as the contents are often updated. If you have any comments or suggestions do please let us know using our Contact Form.
The civil parish of Little Marlow broadly comprises 1,350 hectares of mainly farmland rising from the Thames-side meadows to the broad leaf woodland just south of the M40 motorway. Most of the parish is within the Green Belt and forms part of the Chilterns Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.
From the 2001 census we know that there are 579 dwellings housing 1331 people. Many of these dwellings are located in the south of the parish in the settlements of Abbotsbrook, Well End, Fern, Westhorpe and the village of Little Marlow. The village also contains the 12th century church of St John the Baptist and the adjoining Manor House. We are well served by several attractive public houses and a well stocked farm shop with adjoining butcher/fishmonger.
This financial year 20202021 we are focusing on the refurbishment of the Pavilion.

In January 2009, Little Marlow Parish Council took on Devolved Powers from Buckinghamshire County Council. These are:
- Granting permissions for temporary event signage, removal of unauthorised signs and fly-posting;
- Issuing of hedge cutting notices;
- Notification of dangerous vegetation under section 154 (1) Highways Act 1980;
- Cleaning of road signs and minor traffic sign repairs;
- Checking for obstructions on pavements and footpaths; and
- Slip cutting & maintenance of roadside ditches.
In early 2015 Buckinghamshire County Council re-approached Parish Councils to ask if more Councils wished to undertake Devolved Services . Little Marlow has been providing these services for a number of years and resolved to continue under this new scheme. In addition to the services which we already provided, the Council took responsibility for 30 mph urban grass cutting within the parish. With additional responsibilities and a reduced budget, Little Marlow is working with volunteer groups and parishioners to ensure that all areas of the parish is well maintained and remain a lovely place to live.
